Today we had a brief view of the city of Vienna. We walked for a couple of hours round several wonderful buildings in the old town like the Hofburg, the theatre, Albertina and a few churches. The city would require at least a couple of days to see it properly but having the dog would not allow us into any of them, so we were just satisfied with what we saw from the outside. The buildings were very grand with statues of naked muscular men everywhere fighting various creatures actual or mythical. It was difficult driving through Vienna with the roads not marked that clearly in terms of direction at junctions and general lack of road markings + trams in the mix, we only had one narrow miss with another car, luckily not a tram because they don't stop for cars! Car parking is also mostly underground, so with only 50mm to spare with the height of the camper van it was very precarious. We then continued towards the Czech border and we ended up in a campsite by the town of Lednice with a lovely chateau. Having a pint of beer at the equivalent of about a 1 makes it go down a lot easier! Cheers.

Dnes jsme se kratce podivali do Vidne. Prosli jsme se asi tak dve hodinky a videli nekolik krasnych budov vcetne Hofburgu, divadla, Albertina a nekolika kostelu. Clovek by potreboval aspon dva dny na poradnou prohlidku Vidne, ale se psem by nas do mnoha mist nepustili, tak jsme se spokojili jen s tim, co jsme videli zvenku. Budovy byly majestatni se sochami nahych svalnatych muzu, kteri bojovali s ruznymi stvurami, at uz urcitymi nebo mytickymi. Jizda Vidni byla tezka, protoze silnice nemaji jasne znaceni co se tyce smeru na krizovatkach a vseobecne neni dostatek znaceni na silnicich a do toho vseho se michaji tramvaje. Jen tesne jsme se minuli s jednim autem, nastesti to nebyla tramvaj, protoze ty pro auta nezastavi! Parkovani je vetsinou pod zemi a nase dodavka mela jen asi 50mm mista nad strechou, takze to bylo dost natesno. Pokracovali jsme pak k ceskym hranicim a skoncili jsme v kempu u Lednice, kde je krasny zamek. Pivo za necelou libru se pije daleko snaze! Na zdravi.
